York Castle Prison

Part of the York Castle complex, York Castle Prison invites masochistic visitors to spend the day where others spent a lifetime. With York Castle having been a seat of justice for 1,000 years, the attraction explores its unique history.

With part of York Castle still used as a seat of justice today, York Castle Prison admirably evokes an atmosphere of gravitas and difficult times past for all those who visit.

Weaving through the cramped cells and claustrophobic surrounds of the old prison's narrow chambers, visitors are invited to learn about the misdeeds performed by those unlucky enough to be incarcerated there, as well as the severe fates their acts condemned them to.
